Mathers to Middle Tennessee

This was speculated but is now official, according to I’Tavius Mathers.

The former Ole Miss running back says he has transferred to his hometown university, Middle Tennessee State, in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Unless he’s granted a waiver by the NCAA for some reason Mathers will have to sit out the 2015 season and will have one season of eligibility remaining.

Had he transferred to a lower-level school he would be guaranteed immediate eligibility.

Mathers is the second Ole Miss running back to transfer, following Mark Dodson.

That leaves Jaylen Walton, Jordan Wilkins, Eugene Brazley and Akeem Judd as the scholarship running backs available for spring drills.
